to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed

written response to michelle obama's speech given. at the same time the level of crisis is so profound that i think there was an undercurrent in some settings where there was a sense if this were any other setting and any other presidential figure, we would be outraged by the level of cries we're in. that's the rock and the hard place that african-americans place, the symbolic value political connections and emotional value of the first black president, but the reality that he's either unable or unwillingly to verbally address or substantively confront the race structure inequality. >> i want everybody to understand, of course we're not saying he caused the problems, the income falling the net worth falling or not. let me quote the head of the congressional black caucus: >> is that the ironic problem professor rose, if he were white, we would be pushing him harder to help the african-american community no. >> oh, i think there would be a much greater sense that a white democratic progressive liberal blue dog whichever would be held accountable much more explicitly for at least feeling

'm curious about the strategy to appeal to obama voters. and let me ask michelle, do you think that was successful? >> the speech that governor romney gave last night moved the ball forward in showing the american public that he is a human being. he has been running for president for so many years now, and so many people say they don't know who mitt romney was, and so that's why the convention was very important for him. the speech last night, there were parts of it that were compelling for mitt romney as the person that we know him to be. in terms of talking obama supporters into becoming romney supporters, i don't think that that has yet happened. we didn't hear anything about policy, all we heard was mitt romney is a family wife very much loved by his wife and children, the story he gave last night about his father and the love that his father had for his mother, and his father left his mother a rose every day, and the day she found out that her husband died was the day she didn't receive a rose. but it might not be enough to actually convince anyone to

[ laughter ] >> john: no, he completely agrees on keeping marijuana illegal, and people who smoke it even if they are sick and have cancer deserve to go to jail. and in the 2007 campaign we have a clip where a very sick man -- a fellow who was -- had cancer, in a wheelchair met governor romney at a c
would think that rick perry and michele bachmann had just learned the u.s. was on the road to armageddon. actually, they were reacting to the decision by the supreme court to uphold president obama's affordable care act probably does signal the end of time. let us be honest. chief justice roberts to the disappointment of many conservatives sided with his liberal peers is actually no lefty. and if mitt romney is elected president and gets several supreme court picks justice roberts, chief justice will preside over the most conservative court in our nation's history. and joining us from new york to discuss the intersection of presidential politics and the supreme court is jeffrey toobin, the author of the "the oath, the obama white house and the supreme court." jeffrey toobin, so glad to have you inside "the war room." >> great to talk to you governor. >> jennifer: you and your great books on the series of the court. will you go down in history as the documenter of all of the good gossip behind the pillars
. >> why do they have wings then? >> i think they fly short distances. >> president obama he talked to you recently. he told you that you did the best impression of him of anybody. >> he did. that was crazy. you know, michelle likes the show. michelle's a fan. she likes it. you know it's on. >> he's funnier. i'm funnier. you know. we understand that. >> you get the impression she really is the most powerful person in the world. she's running him and he's running -- >> she's got the remote. >> i'm supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> [ bleep ] president obama okay? [ cheering ] we have a black muslim in the white house. >> we were told by the mainstream media at large that governor romney was having major campaign issues and they were rooted to the middle class and how he couldn't relate to them and so on and so forth. >> i watched his interview on "60 minutes." i don't think he helped soften his image any. >> you would move some government programs to the states. what would they be? >> w
gaffe unlike anything obama has done in his entire political career. >> stephanie: and he got so flustered and said he was dating michele bachmann -- >> wow. >> stephanie: sorry, that was a proud toian slip. >> yeah, i don't think he particularly sharpened up doing that. you'll forgive me someone is trying to call me on my other line. >> stephanie: it's got to be a bigger name than me. love you charlie pierce -- >> no, no no. it's probably nobody i want to talk to. >> stephanie: well, i was actually out of time. >> oh okay. >> stephanie: love you charlie pierce. [ applause ] >> stephanie: right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> my opinion, you are nuts. >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." in our nation's capital, around the country and around the globe. >>dc columnist and four time emmy winner bill press opens current's morning news block. >>we'll do our best to carry the flag from 6 to 9 every morning. >>liberal and proud of it. are they contagious? i don't think so. [ male announcer ] contract the rainbow! taste the rainbow! what the current
challenge. i'll take that back. michelle obama said we have to work hard for what we want. >> stephanie: right. i thought she -- you know, just so classily as she is, really made the point about as my sister pointed out at the top of the show about when you made it, reach back and help somebody else, don't shut the door behind you and barack has always thought -- basically being wealthy is not the most important thing in the world. it is what you give back and who you help. which is obviously what rebuild the dream is about. let's take a listen to michelle obama from last night. >> after so many struggles and triumphs that have tested my husband in ways i never could have imagined, i have seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are. no. it reveals who you are. [ cheers & applause ] >> stephanie: you know, it is interesting. i thought one of the best lines i don't know who it was jim but basically, when you talk about really being able to state your accomplishments with a spine but the whole
follow bill clinton i think is barack obama. >> absolutely. now michelle obama. >> bill: yeah, that's true. >> but you're right. i think to lead into him tonight with the vice president is a great idea because nobody talks about the economy in human terms like joe biden does. he humanizes economic stuff better than anyone and i think even better than bill clinton and he'll be warm and he'll be enthusiastic and probably not very brief. >> bill: he may depart from the script a little bit too. joe biden still has the best summary of what the message of this campaign is all about when he says here, i've got it on a bumper sticker for you. osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> absolutely. i heard joe at an event near my district a couple of years ago and he said he had this one thing, he had the crowd wrapped around his finger and he said you know, the hardest walk any father has to make is to climb that short flight of steps and to tell his son or daughter that they're not going to be able to play in
of the democratic farm convention, then you know that obama gave a good speech and michelle obama good speech. tammy duckworth good speech. one speech that mattered last week, ladies and gentlemen of earth, that was the speech by governor jennifer granholm who now joins us live on the show. good morning, governor! >> jennifer: good morning. >> john: i want to start off by saying and repeating to our audience that your exquisite show "the war room" is moving to 10:00 p.m. on current tv. i'm excited about that. >> jennifer: you know what's great about it -- we have our morning meeting an hour later which is a good thing. it is a little bit tougher on folks who are on the east coast if they like to go to bed early but for folks on the west coast they can get home from work and have dinner and watch it. >> john: that's why we have dvrs. it is an excellent show. you're probably sick of it. it has been a week. i have to gush again and thank you for the most wonderful inspiring speech that -- your speech was so great, you got the vice
